I got a light household cleanser smell on the nose, mixed with stale candy, dry pasta, and Swiss cheese. I thought the palate was, overall, sweet and “spring fresh” like after a rain shower. The finish was not outstanding, but was rather nice. Sort of peaty with a little candy in there too. I couldn’t readily identify the notes with any particular candy. My wife said, "Smells like candy... some kind of candy I don't like." But I thought it was pretty good.

We've had a bottle of this knocking around our office (a gift from a client) but it has remained unopened for now.

My bottle of Tobermory 10 is also uniquely green with white-painted lettering, but it is taller and thinner. This is one of my lowest-cost single malts, which IMO, would be considered as a budget scotch, and which may compete with the better blends.

Decided to give that bottle a home, so snuck it out last night. Will give it a try over the weekend :-)

"Spring Fresh" was quite accurate. Tried my first dram at a local spirits shop a couple of days ago. Mostly, it was "nondescript" but I could see it as a first time scotch drinker's dram. Not intimidating, rather bland, but OK.
